Take it day by day

Someone has said that today is a marvel of opportunity crucified between two thieves, yesterday and tomorrow! Today, this very day, is one of the most wonderfully precious things you will ever have.

Today you can do some of the things that you’ve been putting off for so long. You can’t do them yesterday and may not have the chance to do them tomorrow, but today is yours! Today you can be the kind of person you always dreamed you’d be “tomorrow.” This is that tomorrow!

You’ve always intended some “tomorrow” to get right with God; this is that tomorrow. Your yesterdays are left with God, and none of their disappointments should be dragged into this day. Tomorrow is still unborn and you shouldn’t borrow from it. Today is yours.

Today—filled with golden opportunities and pregnant with great possibilities! This is the golden tomorrow that you dreamed about yesterday.


Make the choice to embrace this day. Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the ghost of yesterday or the “To-Do” list of tomorrow! It’s inspiring to see all the wonderfully amazing things that can happen in a day in which you participate. Steve Maraboli


If we could only do this: Take life just for the day! It’s letting life mass up on you and thinking that this thing has to be borne for many days that oppresses you and burdens you. God’s Word says, “As thy day, so shall thy strength be.”

You can have faith for almost anything if you’ll take it a day at a time. In the morning of any day, today, look up and put your hand in the hand of the Jesus and say, “Lord, I believe Your Word. You have promised strength for today. This day I will trust You; this day I will, with Your help, walk step by step in obedience. I will be kept in perfect peace this day because I keep my mind stayed on You, today.”

If we confront the trials and burdens thus in detail, it is easier to live victoriously; and if you should die tomorrow, you are best prepared by walking in the Spirit today, and faithfully discharging the duties of today.


Every second is of infinite value. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return. – Mary Jean Iron


One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon—instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. – Dale Carnegie


Do not count the days; make the days count. – Muhammad Ali


For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin—real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.  – Alfred D. Souza


Do not let making a living prevent you from making a life. – John R. Wooden


Resolve to make at least one person happy every day, and then in ten years you may have made three thousand, six hundred and fifty persons happy, or brightened a small town by your contribution to the fund of general enjoyment. – Sydney Smith


Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin. – Mother Teresa
